This book provides a full description of the process of home canning. It includes step by step instructions and details necessary to preserve food safely. Illustrations and diagrams help review the canning process. For those who just want to jump into canning, the book starts with detailed instructions on preparing five versatile home-canned foods: strawberry jam, mint jelly, salsa, corn relish and dill pickles. From there, it explains that one should be able to move on to more extensive recipes.
The bulk of the book provides more than 400 recipes for canning a variety of fruits and vegetables to make spreads, jams and jellies, relish, chutney, condiments and more. Tips are included for each of the recipes and some of the recipes include variations. An extensive troubleshooting table of problems and prevention/solutions is included for each section. There are several beautiful color photographs of prepared recipes. Nutrition information is not included for the recipes.
The book reviews the equipment necessary for home canning, but most of the recipes are heat-processed in a boiling-water canner. The book explains that many pots can be used as boiling-water canners. Pressure canners, canning jars, and other tools/utensils will be necessary for some recipes. An altitude chart, produce purchase guide, and glossary help make this book a wonderful canning reference.
